Amos  The Bahamas / 2011 / 58 mins

AMOS FERGUSON, MATCH ME IF YOU CAN, pays tribute to this highly spiritual Bahamian intuitive
artist known for his brilliantly colored paintings of island ritual, fauna, flora & scenes from the Bible. The documentary explores the life & work of the “Picasso of Bahamian Art,” from his meager beginnings in The Forest, Exuma, as one of seven surviving children who worked the family farm, to America as one of the original ‘contract’ workers picking fruit in the fields for American men away at War.
